New Tribest Green Star Juicer GS2000
Powerful masticating action of TWIN GEAR cuts and juices almost all vegetables including carrots, celery, leafy vegetables and wheat grass. The new TWIN GEAR system incorporates magnetic and bio-ceramic technologies which enables juices made in the Green Star to be stored longer, without losing health building benefits. The patented Pocket Recess of the TWIN GEAR easily guides tough, fibrous vegetables and herbs into the juicing area between the two gears. There are three cutting points on the TWIN GEAR, set to cut stringy fibers into small pieces, preventing a machine jam, which often occurs with ordinary dual gear juicers.
The Green Star juice extractor, with its uniquely engineered design has been assembled using the highest quality materials and workmanship for your maximum health and juicing pleasure

good at some things, not at othersJan 05, 2007
By Forrest Wilson
This was my first juicer, so I have no basis for comparison except what the manufacturer claims. You cannot juice wheatgrass with this, that is a blatant lie. you will get so much more foam than juice you will wish that you had driven to a juice bar and paid for them to do it, plus now you have to clean it again.
It juices things like carrots, jicama, green leaves and celery very well. The tougher and harder the veggie, the better this thing is. It absolutely cannot juice things like citrus, tomatoes, and even most apples will cause it to clog up quickly. It is so so at juicing cucumber. It is recommended that if you need to juice apples or cukes, switch off with a piece of carrot to push it all through.
I tried making almond butter several times, and it comes out looking like bread crumbs. I ran it through a bunch of times, and eventually it resembled almond "dough", cetrainly nothing creamy that could be called "almond butter" by any definition.
Cleaning it seems like a chore. I believe there are six pieces you can simply rinse off, and then there is the screen which you must scrub with the included brush. This is a total pain, and if you need to replace the brush or any other parts, they are very pricey. Oh and this machine weighs like 30 pounds!
My intent is not to bring anyone down with a lot of negativity, it's just that this was my experience and the reviews I have read didn't really paint the whole picture.

Powerhouse machineJan 13, 2006
By D. Dorcas
I love this machine. I use in quite often to make a variety of juice drinks. Yes it is a bit of a chore to clean, but if you do it right away and get into a rountine in only takes about 10 minutes to get it done. I love that it doesn't heat the juice so that the enzymes are still alive. I also got a pump n seal so that I can put the juice in mason jars and vacuum pack them so it last longer. I juice a big batch of "green lemonade" (see Natalia Rose THe Raw Food Detox Diet) about twice a week and make other drinks when desired. I am looking forward to making nut butters as well. I have also used the pulp in some other recipes and the remainder goes in my compost pile (boy does it break down fast as pulp!) Enjoy!

Reliable heavy duty machine for the serious juicerJun 06, 2006
By The Lifelong Learner
I've been using this juicer for 10 months, about 4 times a week. I love it. It's quiet. You can carry on a normal conversation while the machine is running. Juices slowly at a cool temperature. Makes minimal foam. Squeezes the pulp dry. You don't waste so much as with the non-gear driven kind. You don't need another machine to do different stuff. E.g., it handles fresh ginger as easily as carrots. Yes, it has several parts to disassemble to clean, but it's very easy to do - 10-15 min - and re-assembly is idiot-proof. I'm very happy with the Green Star.

It's great!Jan 06, 2009
I love this juicer & highly recommend it. When I received it, the box was in horrible shape, but the contents were intact. The juicer came with a DVD to show how to use it, but after viewing it, I felt it was not really very useful. I feel the same about the booklet provided - kind of so, so in application & usefulness. I've had to go to other sources to find out juicing specifics.
I use my juicer once every 3 days as I juice enough to last me 2-3 days to keep my juice fresh. It is quiet, easy to use & very easy to clean when done. I set the juicer on the counter next to my sink. At the sink, I prepare my veggies & stack them next to the juicer on a clean towel. Presently, I'm juicing carrots, celery, kale & swiss chard & some apples. Once I'm done filling my juice jars & storing them in the fridge, I'm ready to disassemble the juicer for cleaning. The running water is right there for rinsing the parts as I take them off the machine. The filter does need a little help with the brush, but it doesn't take long. As I rinse, I stack the parts on another towel for draining & drying. You can tip the machine down a little towards the sink & give it a quick, very light & gentle rinse with the sink spray where the last part came off to get rid of the last veggie residue. Once the parts are dry, I re-assemble them on the juicer & it's ready to go for the next time.
Even my husband likes to come & help me with this process, from start to finish.

great machine - hard to cleanOct 26, 2005
By M. K. Foley
This is a superbly well-made machine. However, it is difficult to assemble and a pain in the butt to clean. Takes 20 minutes to clean after using. I really wish I had gotten the Vita-mix instead.
